Great way to keep the kids happy after so many monument visits. Our guide, David, gave us some instructions before getting to the river. We could also choose if we take 1 person or 2 people boats. Kids wanted to go with us and that was perfectly done without any extra payment. The river is very easy to navigate and you can see many beautiful buildings and even the bell tower from the river.

It is an easy activity best done in the morning or at sunset. We chose the sunset kayak ride and it was so gorgeous to be at this time of the day. They were many people on both sides of the river playing music or doing a picnic and it felt like the world was standing still. We really enjoyed it.

A great way to experience the city from a local point of view. We only saw local people in the water apart from the big tourist boats. I think this is much better than taking the big boat that sounded loud and looked very boring. You see pretty much the same and much more.

Perfect activity for a nice spring afternoon. It is a nice way to get away from the touristy places and enjoy the river. We saw a lot of locals to do water activities and even a number of important sites were visible from the river too. Filippo was our guide and he made some explanations of each site with the background history. All in all a very fun and informative tour.

We had 3 days in Seville and decided to spend one day with history and culture, on the second day we did a flamenco lesson and the kayak tour and on the 3rd we went for horse riding around Seville. The guides were all amazing and took great care of us. Highly recommendable.

We had a fantastic time with Filippo, our guide, who knew all about the history of the sights along the river and flavored the info with his own perceptions which we thoroughly enjoyed. We were initially concerned we would have difficulty finding the location (reviews of other kayak rental facilities warned readers) but it was super easy. Filippo was waiting for us when we arrived, showed us the facilities and off we went. It was great to hear his enthusiastic comments about Sevilla and suggestions for other things to see. We were very pleased with our lovely kayaking morning on the Guadalquivir.

What a great experience and an alternative way to see the city from the river. My son and I originally booked for 10am but had it changed to 9am to improve our experience (due to large group going out at 10am). It turned out to be the best time as the river was really quiet and peaceful with the heat of the sun only felt as we finished the tour. Our guide was very friendly, really informative and always making sure we were happy and constantly hydrated. I fully recommend this tour if you ever visit the city, we loved it!

Had a great time learning about Seville in the sun on a kayak on the river. Miguel was a great guide. Would happily recommend.
It was beautifully sunny day in Seville and I wanted to do something different, so I booked a kayaking tour to cool off a bit and have some fun. The tour didn’t disappoint, it was really fun kayaking on the river and still learning about the history of Seville, and it was really easy. The guides name was Caroline, and she really knew her history and led us all at a relaxed pace, suitable for anyone, I have kayaked before so I know. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone and especially if you have kids, it is very safe and they will love it like I did. Thanks for an awesome time!!!
We wanted to arrive into Seville and get a sense for the city, but wanted to see things slightly differently. We saw the kayak tour along the river and thought it would be perfect… and it was!
Carolina was our guide on a sunny Saturday evening and she guided us down the river whilst getting a sense of what we were interested in before delving deep into the history of the city. She was incredibly knowledgeable and personable making the tour terrifically engaging, whilst the physical element of the kayaking was well balanced.
The tour cost 69€ for the two of us, which prior to booking seemed quite pricey but by the time we’d finished it felt like money well spent. Obviously the tour doesn’t exactly do a landmark tour of the city as it is limited to where you can kayak along the main channel by the Torre de Oro, but this served as a great introduction to a city we fell in love with.
